The trail is easy yes but there are a lot of exposed tree roots and a fairly steep section of trail. Watch for horses in the summer and the occasional bicyclist.

We took our 7year old grandson, who had no issues with the length. The falls are amazing!!!

Hike that can be done without any pack if you wanted to go minimalist. Easy and flat enough to take young children on; very safe, wide, well maintained, and stable trail.

Really liked this trail to the Falls. You walk through an area of dead fall trees and then up the ridge and down to Morrell Lake. You make a left on the trail to continue to the Falls. Over a bridge and around to the Falls. The spring melt was in full force an the falls were overflowing and powerful as shown by the pictures attached. Well worth the trip.

The only difficulty of this home is it's length. You do walk through some large beetle kill standing timber which is cool. There is a pin towards the end that would be difficult to fish. You will not be alone on this trip.

Great hike. Not strenuous. About 6 miles or so round trip to the water falls which were awesome. Bear country but no signs today, the berries weren't quite ripe yet though. Our 9, 6 and 4 year olds had fun on this hike even with getting rained on the whole way back.

beautiful, easy hike... not steep or very difficult. A few areas where there is an incline. Falls are very beautiful! A lot of traffic on the trail when we went, but still a sight!
